[www.inewsguyana.com] – Indian High Commissioner (HC) to Guyana, Mr. Venkatachalam Mahalingam on Friday, May 29 paid a courtesy call on Prime Minister (PM) Moses Nagamootoo, who took the opportunity to invite Minister of Agriculture Noel Holder to be present during the meeting.

The PM explained that the meeting was a “very fruitful exchange of views”, and focused on some of the existing arrangements between the Indian and Guyanese Governments. He also stated that talks focused on “a variety and wide field of assistance that could be rendered, technically and otherwise, to the sugar industry in Guyana.”

Mr Mahalingam noted that during the friendly meeting, most of the discussions centered on what assistance India could offer Guyana in terms of agriculture, specifically in the rice and sugar industries.

He said he was looking forward to working together with the PM and the Minister of Agriculture in “furthering relations between India and Guyana, particularly in the field of agriculture.” [Extracted and modified from GINA]

  1. What exactly will India be doing?
    PM firstly we have to establish what is the problem of the industry.
    That will be the basis of any request. There were a number of indian companies that have already reported on Guysuco. All they have been doing is referring to opportunities of supply.
    PM why dont you put together a local team to deal with the issues of the industry after you conduct the forensic audit.
    Until then asking India to help will be a disaster. PM this is new to you dont be ashame to ask questions. Talk to Pandit Vinshu and ask that he put a team together to deal with the problems of the industry and soloutions.
